I went to visit my mum earlier today to find that she has been moved again to a different ward. She has also had a nasty fall resulting in stitches below and above her eye and substantial bruising. She was very drowsy and unsteady today and could hardly speak. I brought this to the attention of the nurse in charge of her care, who said she had been fine all morning. Reluctantly she agreed to do her obs and her blood pressure was 80/50. Alarm bells were now ringing, she called the on call Dr who thought that she had maybe had a stroke. A ct scan and bloods were taken. The stroke Dr advised that she had not had a stroke, but PSP sufferers can have good and bad days, it can also affect blood pressure etc. I cannot believe they are expecting to send her home with minimal care. This will not be happening, she couldn't even get out of bed, and watching her eat was painful. This indeed is a horrible condition.
